It's definitely not dead and has survived, but obviously some parts have been killed back to the root. I would actually remove the dead parts now - your USDA zone is 8a or 8b, and apart from unexpected and unusual freezes, this tree should be perfectly hardy in your area. However, whether you remove those parts now or not is your choice - I just wouldn't want to look at it as it is currently all summer and fall, and that dead growth will be in the way of new growth and may be harder to remove later on, as the new growth gets larger.
In an average winter, it shouldn't suffer this type of damage, unless your local climate has changed so much it regularly gets much colder than it should in winter. However, if you know there's going to be a sudden freeze, some temporary protection such as horticutural fleece to help the tree cope whilst it's still young would be helpful.
